Romancing SaGa 2 Coming to the PS4 and PS Vita Next Week
Late last month, Akitoshi Kawazu, the game designer behind the SaGa series, revealed on Twitter that Romancing SaGa 2 would be coming to the West sometime this month. Now, a solid release date has been revealed, and fans can get excited, as the game will be releasing worldwide next week, on December 15 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PS Vita, and PC.
While the game has been out for some time, this is the first time the Western audience will be able to buy the title on a non-mobile device. According to Gematsu, the new versions of the game will be ported from the PS Vita, iOS, and Android versions of the game. The PlayStation 4 version of the game supports cross-save with the PS Vita version as well, for those interested in buying both.
For those unaware, Romancing SaGa 2 is a Japanese role-playing game developed by Square that launched way back in 1993, but has been remade for mobile devices and handheld consoles since then. For more on the game, make sure to check out below:

The SaGa series is one of Square Enix’s most beloved. The first three titles were originally branded overseas under the “FINAL FANTASY LEGEND” moniker , and garnered critical acclaim for their complex yet compelling combat system.
Romancing SaGa 2 takes the varied gameplay of other entries in the series and combines it with an open-ended free-form scenario system whose story is as vast as the world in which it plays out. The player takes the role of a succession of emperors, painting the history of the world with each and every action.
Familiar series hallmarks such as formations and glimmers make a return in this unique title.
Romancing SaGa 2 is set to launch on December 15.
